Piero Aversa Painting, Portrait of George Zoritch

Lot 132: Piero Aversa Painting, Portrait of George Zoritch

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Painting, "Portrait of George Zoritch", by Piero Aversa . Aversa was born in what is now Eritrea (then an Italian colony) and educated in Rome before arriving in the United States in 1953. He was a well-known personality on the international scene during the 1950's and 1960's, when he was popular with the "jet set" that seasonally migrated from Palm Beach, to New York City, to Long Island, to the Aegean, to Paris, and back again. In all those venues he painted portraits, designed hotel suites and apartments, and decorated houses. He exhibited at least twice, in 1962 and in 1966 at the Findlay Galleries on Palm Beach, and decorated the ocean-front house of Lilly Pulitzer. Yuri [George] Zoritch (1917-2009) was born in Moscow in the midst of the Bolshevik Revolution and taken by his mother first to Lithuania and then to Paris (1931), where his extraordinary physical beauty and strength, as well as his talent, were developed by the great choreographers of the post-Diaghilev Ballets Russes. There he partnered all the renowned ballerinas of the Balanchine era such as Danilova, Krassovska, and Maria Tallchief. From 1938 he danced with the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo and then with the Grand Ballet du Marquis de Cuevas, in Barcelona, as noted by the inscription and signature on the reverse of the unlined canvas. The canvas, stretcher, glass, and frame of this exquisite portrait are, in fact, entirely original and thereby the work epitomizes a specific moment in 20th-century cultural history. This lot was examined, researched, and described by Roger Ward, PhD. Roger Ward completed his MA and PhD degrees at the Courtauld Institute of Art, London. He is currently an adjunct curator and guest curator at several museums, a consultant for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security for the repatriation and restitution of confiscated works of art, and an expert advisor ; 1956

Condition Report: very good, minor wear and nicks to frame, not examined outside the frame
